  • Early Days


    Aug. 5, 1999

    Leslie and Patricia Sidebottom Madson of 655 Davis Road in Campbellsville will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary on Sunday, Aug. 15.

  • Any chances for a pair of new football stadiums?

    A lot of dirt has been moved at Campbellsville Middle School at the site of a future track for the Purple and Gold.

    There has also been some speculation that eventually that could also be the home of Eagles’ football.

    Once the track is built, there seems to be plenty of room for a stadium and fieldhouse, and that would help the Lady Eagles’ softball team, which hosts its home games at CMS.

    An eventual move to home football and soccer games at CMS would also mean the Eagle baseball team would have the current complex by itself.

    With our modern age of technology, it doesn’t take long to spread the news. That became even more apparent to me on Saturday night while at a softball tournament.

    Getting my phone charged in someone else’s car at about 20 miles west of St. Louis in Bridgeton, Mo., it was evident that something had happened near home when I saw I had a text message from Campbellsville High School head boys’ basketball coach Tim Davis.
